New UV Glass Optic Mixes Wavelengths from Multi-UV LED Array to Mimic Hg Spectrum

At RadTech UV+EB 2016, we presented a paper that discussed the development of a UV glass optic that is capable of transmitting UVA, B, and C wavelengths from an array with different wavelength UV LEDs. The optic mixes the different wavelengths and produces a single irradiance pattern that has uniform wavelength intensity.
